Default o.s. vg pipe choice.

Dont even waste your time.
O.S. Motor's work best with O.S. pipes.

You will spend more but you will get more mileage per tank(if racing) and it will have it's best power.

O.S. 2050 is the way to go on this motor.

If you simply dont have that much to spend and not a racer.
JP-2 would be my 2nd choice.

thanks for the info. i'll check that pipe out.


btw, i'm a racer doing some club racing. problem is is that i'll be racing my ad2 for most of the time and my hyper 7 will be my runner up. so i don't need to spend alot of money on a pipe for a few races. but thanks for the info.

there's really no good reason to buy a pipe that costs as much as your motor.....get the jp-2 pipe.

I dont mean to derail your thread but what temp do you guys run you vg at. I have heard that this engine likes to be cool but mine seems to run better hot. Thanks. Also I have the jp2 pipe with mine.

Default runs hotter

I tried to run it cool but its a bit slow @ 220. REally no power. At 250 its good. Also remember the head is a bit small. Thats with smoke trailing too and no lean bogging.

I wonder the same thing, is the 086 a good pipe for the engine?

Also, does anyone feel that you should replace the head on the VG with something bigger or is this a non issue?

The 086 will give you good power at the sacrafice of run time.

Les' suggestion of the 2050 by OS is an incredible match and my favorite. It cost a lot and has been discontinued. Don't know why. It is also a little lighter than the JP pipes.

The VG is a bottom end motor. It likes mid to top end pipes and filles them well.
I have found the JP3 to be close to the OS 2050. You still get the mileage and the top end ofthe 2050 but it cost about $10 more than the JP2.

The new Dynamite pipes are real good. The mid and top end pipes are the ones I would look at here. They have the good stingers and look great.
I run the 053 on my OS and it runs great.

I wonder......

I just put the 2060 on my car. I don't know yet but they look and are designed completly different. 2050 uses short header. 2060 uses the long one. 2050 is designed on bottom end 3 chamber principles and the 2060 is a two chamber smooth flow design.
I would think they would need something different than the 2060. Maybe they just found a way to make it look better. The 2060 looks much better and more refined.

Who knows???? We can not find anything on it with OS.

still.....i'd think that you'd be fine with the stock head. if however, after you get the motor and you think it's over temp, check to see if your not leaned out too much, check the drive train for binding, or anything else that would load up the motor.

if you still think you might need a aftermarket head, so far, the only one i know of is the king headz head. they have them in silver, blue and black.
